The West Country region
Cornwall's climate is a relatively warm and sunny one. Cornwall boasts numerous beaches, many of which are ideal for surfing and bathing. Cornwall offers something for everyone. The world famous Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Georgian port of Charlestown. Quaint fishing villages. Large seafaring ports and a wild windswept coastline.
Cornwall is the setting for numerous books by such authors as Rosamunde Pilcher and Daphne du Maurier.
Cornwall has fresh seafood that is readily available because of its location. Many restaurants offer cuisine from local dishes to international recipes. The port of Mevagissey is only 5 miles away from Vose Farm where you can watch the boats unload their catch and buy fresh fish.
Vose Farm is ideally placed to explore Cornwall, located just outside the ancient village of Tregony (known as Gateway to the Roseland Peninsula). The Roseland Peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty with wonderful beaches and small fishing villages. Driving to the bottom of the Peninsula, you may take a foot ferry from St Mawes to Falmouth, one of the deepest harbours in the World and home to the National Maritime Museum and numerous restaurants and bistros. The North Coast of Cornwall is only 20 miles away.
Vose Farm's nearest beach is Porthluney, an ideal beach for sunbathing, rock pooling and surfing. The beach is overlooked by Caerhays Castle.
Vose Farm itself has large areas of woodland to explore, a wild life pond with fish, birds and other residents and a dedicated picnic area.
The local pubs are less than two miles away and are both child and dog friendly. Both pubs date from the eighteenth century. The small yet beautiful old town of Mevagissey, was in the past the main focal point of Cornwall's pilchard fishery. Mevagissey still has a harbour. In the town you can see many old buildings, most of which were made from cob and slate, serving as a reminder of an earlier time when Mevagissey was heavily dependent on the large shoals of pilchards for their livelihood.
When you travel down the narrow streets of Mevagissey you will find quite a number of cafes, pubs, gift shops, galleries and craft workshops. You will also find a few hotels and many restaurants that specialize in fish dishes, and you can also find some shops that serve fish and chips.
Mevagissey offers fishing trips from the harbour and even has a ferry that goes to the port of Fowey, which is nearby.
Mevagissey is has an impressive stretch of coastline and there are a number of coastal footpaths that, although steep in some places, are good for walks.
In Mevagissey if you want to go sea angling, then there is ample opportunities for you to do so. The coastline of the town is a good place to do some exploration as it has a lot of coves and beaches. Nearby you will find the small anchorage of Gorran Haven, which is very rich in flora and fauna. Further north there is the sandy beach of Pentewan and further south is the quiet cove of Portmellon. There are many beaches in the area of Mevagissey and they all have some very intriguing rock formations.
